Paediatrician is a specialist treating children throughout their entire childhood. It also includes regular health checks, monitoring their development, diagnosing problems and implementing a treatment.

  • neonatal care (prevention, diagnosis, treatment)
  • regular health checks for healthy children
  • pre-vaccine consultation and examination
  • nutritional deficiency prevention and treatment (anaemia, avitaminosis), obesity treatment
  • diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases, parasitic diseases and tick-borne diseases
  • treatment of gastrointestinal tract disorders (gastroesophageal reflux disease - GORD, biliary reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, abdominal pain, baby colic, constipation, diarrhoea)
  • chronic disease monitoring and treatment (asthma, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, celiac disease, fibrocystic disease, inflammatory bowel disease) 
  • referral for blood tests and ultrasound scans

You should see a paediatrician for a regular health check of your child. Also, you should see the paediatrician if there are any concerning symptoms, such as:

  • increased body temperature
  • respiratory tract symptoms (blocked nose, rhinitis, cough, difficulty breathing, difficulty sucking)
  • gastrointestinal tract symptoms (diarrhoea, constipation, bloating, vomiting, lack of apetite)
  • behavioural changes (excessive tearfulness, hyperactivity, sleepiness, apathy or no reaction to external stimuli)
  • skin rashes, discolouration, ulceration
  • motor development delay, speech delay, difficulty to concentrate and to memorise

Young patients are usually more demanding and at the same time don’t communicate as well as adults. That’s why paediatrician is a specialist who not only has an extensive knowledge and experience but also the right approach. They should know how to talk to children, must be patient and calm. They also have to be helpful and understanding towards the little patients and their parents. Good paediatrician will listen, examine, and implement a treatment or will reassure the parents.
